Simon Says -- SimonSawSunlight Photo Technique From time to time its been suggested that RFF have a mentor Photography help section in terms of Technique - how to shoot this or that. 1st of all I had to find someone whose work I really like. 2ndly that photog had to be willing help others. That's the catch: so many excellent photogs just are not wiling to make the time for that, or just as likely, simply don't give a damn about helping others. SimonSawSunlight is an excellent up and coming photog whose work seems to go well beyond his 24 years.

You can view Simon's work at http://www.simonbephotography.com/  and www.facebook.com/simonbphotography Simon has been published in in FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), LFI (Leica Fotografie International) and more recently in Radiate Magazine. He also recently had a large solo-exhibition in Berlin. Not too Shabby! So, let us begin this adventure and see where it goes. Thank for taking this on Simon!

hibernation and how to wake up - maybe with a tom story

in light and context of recent events, the powers that be have made me understand that it would be appreciated if i posted more on the forum again.

here we go. how you doin. catch me up, tell a story (maybe a tom story), ask me stuff, let me know if i can help, show me a picture taken this month.

in the meantime i'll be thinking about how to stir up some more trouble, save turkey from impending doom, and also, as usual, here's a few pictures:

Hi Simon, do you have any thoughts about advice for someone like me who would like to be a recovering photographer?

Haven't taken a single click in three years. I feel like what's the use, no one is looking at the right pictures anyway, there is no audience.

The right camera is the one you have in your hand, ready to shoot.
